aid to majority leader harry reid told the "wall street journal" that the bill will not include a ban on military style weapons. members continue to vilify efforts at increasing gun safety in a way that only they can. >> they demonize people who are legal gun owners and obama, oh, look at hem. he cares about the children. screw you. you think we don't care about the children? you're the one who won't do anything about the mentally ill. >> 99.99% of the gun owners of america are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today. would you leave us the hell alone? go after the nut jobs. go after the murderers because i don't know any. >> joy, let's talk about this. when you lead in with ted nugent and ann coulter -- >> doesn't get much better. >> always so much to talk about. insofar as we need to come together to get anything enacted. it does seem like the republican party or those in the conservative wing of the republican party have dug their heels in in a firm fashion. >> right. >> gin that, what did you make of the president's, we'll call it, push on the assault weapons

sit down with harry reid tonight and work with senate democrats who have the majority in the senate to move a bill. >> at some point, we've got to do some governing. >> there are are two potential sort of last-minute solutions to the sequester that neither sides want to unite around. the final white house offer to boehner on the grand bargain included nearly $1 trillion in spending cuts over ten years. could it be as a good-will gesture the white house offers one year of those cuts, which come out to $90 billion as a replacement to the sequester this year? then there's the plan senate republicans could offer this week, they haven't decided if they're going to this week that gives the white house flexibility on how to cut spending, but even republicans aren't united on that one. >> here's what i don't understand. we're the party of physical conservati conservatism. have we put a plan together to cut $85 billion between march and october? no. we will criticize everything he does. say, mr. president, it is now up to you to find this $85 billion in savings and we'll say to make it easie

enemies. >> senate majority leader harry reid has moved to set up a likely vote tomorrow on democrats and their alternative plan to replace the automatic cuts with this combo, starting a minimum tax for incomes over $1 million, ending some tax deductions, like one for moving equipment overseas, and making cuts to defense and farm subsidies. reid said yesterday republicans would have one vote on their own replacement bill, not multiple votes. democratic aides say that aid bill is still being drafted, so what will the fallout be of all of this. while 43% believe the president is emphasizing a partisan approach instead of trying to unify the country, a whopping 64% say republicans have a partisan approach to governing. that brings us to more on this poll. with the public mood souring, the president is also starting to get nicked a bit. it appears his mini post-election honeymoon is over. his job rating has slipped. it's still a healthy 50%, 45% disapprove of his performance, and it's still better than when he was during most of the campaign, but down from his numbers in december and janu

case to see if they can use the public pressure, west virginia and harry reid in nevada to do things they might not otherwise want to do. i'm extremely skeptical. people have tried this in the past. no doubt the obama folks have a better organization and social media gives you advantages you didn't have in the past but they're trying to do something i have not seen signs they are willing to do in a non-presidential election. >> i do think, michael steele, the republicans will see the president talk on guns tonight and see the victims of newtown. i think that's going to cut through. we've all had these moments and said the union addresses ab had these moments and maybe there won't be an assault weapon ban and maybe won't go after thes a 99 high capacity magazines. but republicans will have a hard time saying no to background checks and saying no to gun trafficking laws. if they do say no to these items that are 9010s, we used to go around the hill saying it's 8020, 80-20 negative. if it's 80-20, that train's coming an you get out of the way. this is 90-10. my question is will republic

with the sequester idea. in fact he has the exact time and date when they first pitched it to senator harry reid, july 27th, 2011. what's your read on that? >> very detailed reporting by bob woodward there. it's an interesting take. certainly the republicans have jumped on. it's been a debate over the last few weeks about who -- actual lit last few months about whose idea this was. you have jack lew, the former chief of staff to the president, up for treasury secretary who said it at a hearing. this was a republican idea. you see the president has sort of hinted at that, too. more recently jay carney at the white house has acknowledged this isn't a white house idea. the republicans are making a big issue of that. as much as the white house is fanning the flames of concern now, sounding the alarms this week it was their idea. they're saying the president needs to come and meet us and sort of acknowledge we gave a little bit on the fiscal cliff on taxes and not going to do it this time. that's the strategy the republicans are using to pin it on the white house. >> joann, they're really blaming the

harry reid, eric cantor there. and members of congress. these are coveted seats. just saying before the president was introduced here, there has been all this advanced notice that the president will be sort of keeping with his confident, even arguably aggressive tone that he has taken since his reelection. the quote that stood out for me from politico this week, it was assigned to a person close to the drafting of the speech. >> right. >> said the president's approach to the republican party in this speech would be borrowed from the 2500-year-old chinese book philosophy "the art of war." and the quote was "build your opponent a golden bridge to retreat across." . >> i like the quote. and i think that would be probably a good strategy for the president. i mean, i would hope that we don't see a lot of partisan bickering, but i hope he is aggressive in terms of the proposals that he is going to lay out. this being his last term, most people say 18 months and then you start looking lame duck. so very important speech as to what his presidency and his legacy is going to mean. and i think
